WIAW, an Interview, and my new PINK car!

So, yeah…I have an interview for a job on Friday.  It isn’t exactly the one I wanted   and it’s only a temp position but I am trying to look at the bright side.  It’s a job, a foot in the door, a way to network.  I’m not the only one interviewing so there’s a good chance I won’t even get it.  Prayers would be appreciated that the interview goes well.

OOoookkk.  I am watching a Japanese channel (they show English language shows) and they just showed a commercial for placenta pills.  I wish I could understand the whole thing.  I am pretty sure they were saying it was a way to rejuvenate and look/stay young…the tweeny looking actresses were patting their faces like it was a miracle pill.  I didn’t catch the price.  My question is who’s/what placenta?  Um, no thanks.

Anywho…I picked up my car today.  She’s pretty in pink.  🙂  I woulda taken a few pics with her but it was raining all day…again.  Not drizzle.  Rain.  So, tomorrow they said it was supposed to “just be cloudy” and I will try then.  I am excited to drive her around.  I still don’t have a name though.  Any ideas?

So, it’s Wednesday and I haven’t been able to WIAW lately so I figured today was a great day to participate.  Thanks to Jen@PeasandCrayons for hosting!

(Love the new look!)

Gotta admit I haven’t been eating well lately.  I am trying really hard now that we are semi-settled in to get back on the healthy eating bandwagon.  It isn’t easy over here…the food pickings are slim at the grocery store on the base and when I am paying $9 for a bag of potatoes it gets a tad pricey too!  (Yes, $9 for about 5-6 russet potatoes!)  I am told that when I venture off base/go shopping on the economy I will find some better prices on produce.  *whew*  Now that I have a car I will be taking some road trips to find these markets.

So the food:

Breakfast: 2 cups of coffee…the last one I made into a latte with my Keurig milk frother.  (Love that thing!)

Lunch:  cheese stick, peanut butter cookies from yesterday x2, greek yogurt

Snack: Apple Pie Popcorn, Hot Milk Tea (Have I told you about the awesome vending machines here?  Hot and cold drinks!  So cool.)

Dinner:  Spaghetti Squash w/Italian Sausage sauce, corn, and parmesan garlic Italian bread


Surprisingly E didn’t mind the spaghetti squash, especially smothered in the sauce and parmesan.  HB said it was edible but made a comment after the first bite…”What is this?!  I can taste it…Hmmmm, I can tell it’s something different.”  K didn’t like it but I think HB saying something made led him astray.  If daddy doesn’t like it then K doesn’t either.  Stinker.

I made this Apple Pie Popcorn for a snack today.  It was tasty.  I use a popcorn popper we bought at Walmart…I like making our own better than the bag stuff.  Either will work though.

Don’t forget the ideas for names for my pink car!
